Canadian Children's Book: Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella

Shoeless Joe was made famous by the Hollywood adaptation of the book starring Kevin Costner (Field of Dreams). It tells the story of a baseball-obsessed Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella, who hears a voice which instructs him to build a baseball field in the middle of his farm. The field becomes the playground for the ghosts of various based legends, including “Shoeless” Joe Jackson (who had been banned from baseball for his role in the Chicago “Black Sox” scandal of 1919).
